Level 1 Retreat

The Pointing Out Way Level 1 Retreat

Establishing the path to awakening

An 8-day Meditation Retreat

With Daniel P Brown & Gretchen Nelson 

Join Daniel Brown and Gretchen Nelson in this open level course to explore the openness of being and the foundational practices of meditation.

Level 1 retreats present a full set of instructions for Mahamudra practice in a highly condensed manner. By emphasizing concentration early in the retreat, students experience a momentum for practice that often allows at least a taste of realization of the nature of the mind as being pointed out.

Participants are advised to wear warm, comfortable clothing, and to bring a blanket and mat to lay on. Should participants have a meditation cushion or bench, these are recommended – otherwise, chairs will be available.
